Movie #2097: Made In U.S.A. (1966, Jean-Luc Godard)

This is Jean-Luc Godard meets Donald E Westlake. It is based on the novel "The Jugger" by Richard Stark (Westlake). I looked on the internet to see what Westlake's reaction was to this movie. It appears that his reaction was to block it being shown! Apparently, Godard never paid for the screen rights for the book. And who could blame him? After he had smothered the plot with huge amounts of politics and pop culture, who could ever recognize it?
